From the logo you can see that wine, of course, is prominent. But also art, history, agriculture, architecture and the wonderful culture that infuses the area with an indefatigable spirit of hospitality.

The English site just came online. You can explore for yourself here
There you will find collected all the information to match your available time and inclinations to the wonderful experiences that await you in FVG. At Vini e Sapori, they work with all the providers, large and small, and make sure that their operating hours are easily available to you. You can search by your dates to find out what will be open. Or, you can easily locate the contact info for a place not listed to be open when you are there to set up an appointment. Something wonderful they have done is set their members on a rotating schedule so that no matter when you arrive, you will be able to find an interesting range of places to visit. The larger places you would expect, but some of the most charming places are small and out of the way. Both are represented on the rotating schedule. And best of all: no reservations! Not just wine, but great agritourism hotels, delicious regional cuisine, fascinating farmhouses with cheeses and dairy straight from heaven. Olives. Did I mention wine? The site gives you tons of information.
You can tap into pre-designed itineraries whose stops are easily grouped to help you find your own way. If this sounds like a lot of work, there are also links to tour operators who can make your trip easy, breezy with fun itineraries you can simply book online. Either way (or both), the discoveries you make will be your treasures.
I got to find out during my visit there earlier this year that Friuli, Venezia and Giulia all have wonderful climates for curing ham, growing grapes, making wine and living life in a lovely area as tasty as it is rich in culture. I hope you get to see it with your own eyes...and by see I mean savor...and by savor I mean wine. All this typing is making me thirsty!
